A short clip that starts with a Formula A race at Lime Rock, CT in September 1969. Due to a break down during qualifying, Scooter Patrick must start his Surtees TS5 at the end of the pack. Enjoy!
It’s the real stuff, photographed at real races, and you go racing with James Garner . . , star of “Grand Prix.” But, this time it’s for real, he owns the cars and takes you behind the scenes at Sebring, Daytona, Limerock, St. Jovite and even some of his off road racing in Baja, Mexico in his Bad Bronco. Some of Jim’s playmates are Parnelli Jones, John Surtees, Roger Penske, Mario Andretti, Sam Posey, Scooter Patrick, Pat Fahey, Dick Smothers, Dave Jordan, Ed Leslie, Lothar Motschenbacher, Bob Bondurant, Larry Berquist, Fred Baker, Dick Simon, Bill Brack, Chuck Trowbridge, Rex Ramsey, Ronnie Bucknum, Bob Brown, Mike Hiss, Chuck Dietrich, Robert Fischetti, Max Kelly, Peter Rehl, John Mahler, Rich Galloway and hundreds more. You will see the real blood, sweat and tears, like Jim said, “Why couldn’t it be like “Grand Prix”, when you do it for real, it ain’t like the movies!” Producer Barry Scholer and director Andy Sidaris filmed for nine months. John Srevens devised a tiny camera the size of a grapefruit that recorded action that will make your hair Stand on end! Made from 16mm, the film has a few scratches, but this is one you won’t want to miss. James Garner, we can’t thank you enough!
